Charge of the Light Brigade, The

Production-Used Script

Stock #68834

”Always one of your younger type of h’officer fetches up or flops over. They fades away like Lily at bedtime."

An original production-used script from Tony Richardson’s 1968 drama The Charge of The Light Brigade.

This script is 108 pages long and printed on a mixture of pale blue, yellow and white paper. It is missing the first five pages and there are some marked differences between it and the final screenplay. There is no title page to define how early a draft this is.

The Charge of The Light Brigade is written by John Osborne and Charles Wood. Tony Richardson and John Osborne were major anti-establishment figures who had made their names during the British new wave theatre and cinema in the late 1950s/early 1960s. Osborne continues in this theme with this script, taking inspiration from Mrs. Cecil Woodham-Smith’s scathing expose of the Balaclava fiasco, The Reason Why.

The script is held securely in a black Brampton® springback binder with the film’s name written in gold down the spine. The pages show signs of their age and production use, with creases and curling corners but the binder itself remains in good condition.

Materials: Paper, Card.
